I too was given this drug by my Pharmacy instead of Sprintec. I have been on it now for about 1 1/2 months. I had an extremely heavy period that was a few days late to come and leave.

I am calling my doctor to change pr ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have not even been on this BC for a full month & I absolutely hate it & question each morning if I should take it again. The second week I started to experience the head aches that a lot of the reviews are stating as well. I can take medicine for that but what bothers me the most is my mental changes & the nausea (taking Pepto every AM). I have not felt like myself & am tired, do ... Show Full Comment
